Hello again Hugh,
How does the stereo head in your fumeo work then Hugh?
Do you have to output through to a stereo amplifier?
What connections do you have on the pj to output in Stereo?
Hi Andrew, the head has four connections, but just wired for two, being mono main track. I thought that Phil might have secured a std
8mm model when he tried to introduce a different model onto the market, I live in hope. I only replay through its own amp and a Craven
speaker, the amp is 25 watt, so has plenty of power.
You just missed out on one there Vidar.
Paul Foster advertised and sold a 9119 very quickly on e bay recently. It went over to a collector in the States I believe who is also a big fan of these machines.
It would have been great for us all Hugh if Phil's proposed Classic model had become a reality, even if it had have been only a model for those with deep pockets!
Andrew ... yes its a shame that Phil's Fumeo never got off the ground. This was due to a lack of secured pre-orders which he needed
at the time. I placed myself on the pre-order list. He even offered to sell me the prototype later on but I could not afford it then as I
was off work long term sick.
Thanks for getting this forum up and running guys!
Regarding the Fumeo - which by the way is not overrated - pure Italian craftsmanship...I've got a pedestal HL-2000 that I bought for 300 AUD. I thought that was a bargain as it came with several 6000ft spools and a spare 500W Xenon. Now I only have to find a new house to install it in :-)

Lovely pro 16mm pedestal machine there Ole.
Vidar, I think it was close to 2 or 2 1/2 grand if I remember correctly. I will take a look in my old FFTC as featured back then.
No amp or lens for that price either!
Do you know one of the best S/8 silent projectors I ever owned, for at least a week, before the transformer died, was the PaulPlus
Super 8, it gave a very bright picture, which after the "HORIPET 8MM " was a revelation, a very steady frame, indeed I judge frame
"bounce" on this little projector (in my very humble opinion) it was rock steady, a lovely machine , but short lived. Surely there are
other users of this projector, marketed under the "Boots" own badge in the UK.
